Abstract

Aqueous and nonaqueous AOT/n-heptane reverse micelles where characterized by UV-Visible and fluorescence spectroscopy of AO. The study shows the presence of the dimer in aqueous reverse micelles which is not present in the nonaqueous systems. It seems that there is a conversion of the dimer to monomer in the aqueous reverse micelles at high AOT concentration. In the nonaqueous systems, there is only partition of the monomer. The apparent constants of these processes were calculated.
